Like Cameron Moll, I was a bit disappointed when I looked under the hood — check out the source to see what I mean.

Since I like playing on the internet more than I like sleep, I decided to give it a shot. Could I build this site using markup more fitting this decade than the last? I think I did a decent job :)
